Remnant Cotton Threads

Reducing Waste with Recycled Products

In a world that's increasingly conscious of its environmental footprint, recycling has become a buzzword in the interior design scene.

The textile industry, in particular, has been at the forefront of this eco-conscious movement, re-imagining the way we use and re-purpose fabrics.

This Recycle Week, we're excited to share our journey of sustainability, focusing on how our brand reduces environmental impact within the textile industry by using remnant yarns to craft beautifully unique recycled towels, rugs and throws and ultimately reducing textile waste.

But first, let's answer a couple of quick questions.

When is Recycle Week?

Are you aware that National Recycle Week 2023 is currently underway, running from October 16th to 22nd?

In its 20th year, Recycle Week is commemorating this milestone by encouraging children, families and entire communities to participate.

What is Recycle Week?

Recycle Week, organised by Recycle Now, stands as their flagship annual week-long event dedicated to celebrating recycling nationwide.

During this special week, retailers, brands, waste management companies, trade associations, governments, and the media all unite with a common aim: to inspire the public to recycle more of the correct items, more frequently.

Since its inception in 2004, Recycle Week has spearheaded the largest campaign in the nation aimed at changing recycling behaviours.

Through a dynamic blend of film, social media, on-street initiatives, influencers, radio, and PR efforts, Recycle Week has motivated individuals to embrace recycling, harnessing the power of a unified voice.

The theme for this year is "The Big Recycling Hunt," with a focus on tackling "missed capture": items that can be recycled but are often overlooked in households.

The Essence of Recycling

Recycling textiles isn't just a matter of creating sustainable products; it's also about minimizing waste and preserving the Earth's resources.

The process begins with the idea of embracing the character and uniqueness of each fabric remnant.

Our commitment to sustainable living led us to explore inventive ways to transform these remnants into functional and beautiful pieces for your home.

The Journey from Remnants to Rugs

We're proud to be part of the remnant yarn revolution, which involves using leftover or surplus fabrics from textile mills and manufacturers.

These leftover yarns often end up in landfills, contributing to textile waste.

By reusing these yarns, we not only reduce waste but also create unique and sustainable products.

Our chindi rugs are a testament to our dedication to sustainability. Chindi, derived from the Hindi word 'chind,' means 'torn cloth.'

Often called Rag Rugs, they are made by weaving together strips of reused fabric remnants to form a colourful, one-of-a-kind creation.

The result is not only visually stunning but also an eco-friendly alternative to traditional area rugs.

Our collection of Chindi Rugs come in a broad choice of sizes, making them a perfect fit for any room of the home, perhaps as a bedside rug or as a bright and welcoming accent rug in your hallway.

From Scraps to Luxury: Recycled Cotton Towels

Our recycled cotton towels are another success story in the world of sustainable textiles.

By utilizing leftover yarns and fibres from our production, we've been able to create sumptuously soft and absorbent towels.

Each of our recycle cotton towel are wonderfully unique, having a wonderfully unique array of colours crafted to create an enticing and vivid stripe.
